*Plus one (12-unit) course from each of the following three areas:

20.416J/7.74J Evaluating Current Research in Molecular & Cellular Biophysics (6-units, fall)

*It may be possible to substitute other biophysics classes at MIT for those listed above.  To discuss this possibility, please contact Jeff Gore (gore@mit.edu).  For other Biophysics classes offered listed see additional Biophysics Courses.

The Biophysics Certificate Program is open to any graduate student who is already enrolled in a graduate program at MIT. Certificate requirements include a three-course 36-unit interdisciplinary core (Areas I, II, and III below) and a one-semester 6-unit discussion-based course (20.416J/7.74J) that exposes students to diverse areas of modern biophysics research. Students are additionally expected to present their graduate research in the Biophysics Graduate Student Seminar Series, participate in the annual biophysics retreat, which includes student poster presentations, student talks, and ethics training in the responsible conduct of research, and regularly attend the MIT Biophysics Seminar Series. A graduate certificate is not a formal degree, but rather a means of acknowledging that a graduate student has completed a course of study that includes training in biophysics in addition to their principal area of specialization. For questions related to the Biophysics Certificate Program please e-mail biophysics-certificate@mit.edu.
